This was the largest square I visited during my trip to Rome. There is an Egyptian obelisk in the middle, behind a basilica and museum, on the both ends fountains. Taking the stairs or the road to the right, you can reach Terraza del Pincio,...More

A nice piazza on the way from Villa borghese to the spanish steps. Good for a little break and the heading on the way to the city center.

We walked down here after our visit to the Spanish Steps - one long straight road. A nice square and the Egyptian obelisk located in the middle of the square is a focal point and definitely an eye catching addition. I liked looking back and...More

This is a large square at the North end of the Via del Corso Shopping mile. Certainly a beautiful square but not as perfect as many others in Rome. You don’t have to see this square.

At the End of the famouse Corso and the charming Via Babuino this grand plazza is just a wide open place with some interesting buildings at the outside

This piazza seems more complex than the usual piazzas in Rome. The twin churches have a great architecture. Make time to go up to the Teraza del Pincio, so you can see the piazza from above. Very beautiful!

You need at least 2-3 hours to fully visit and take photographs or everything in this zone, so make sure to have water if it is a hot summer day!

We caught the metro (which is by far the best way to get around Rome) to Flamino and walked through Porto del Popolo, (northern gate) as did visitors/foreigners in times of old, before trains, planes and automobiles. Viewed for the first time (in awe) the...More

From its original role as ancient army training fields
to its present-day identity as one of the city’s most
desirable neighbourhoods, the Campo Marzio is the best
place to get lost in Rome. Gorgeous Renaissance and
Baroque palazzos line the streets, and are filled with
enticing boutiques and food shops. By day, Rome’s
best-dressed denizens criss-cross its streets in a
fashionable parade of errands, occasionally pausing to

Yes, just ask your host for the closest one. There is a Valeri Alimentari and further away a Carrefour Express for example.

Most of the tours start around Colosseo. You can reach Termini metro station by express, regional train or bus from airport. Booking around Termini metro station would be sensible.
